three games to one. game five is tomorrow. here is john clark with the rest of your saturday morning sports. hey, everybody. before last night's phillies series opener in washington, manager pete mackanin met with ryan howard and told him, ryan, i have to go with joseph right now. i cannot justify not playing him. tommy joseph is the starting first baseman. goodell laying down the bunt in the first. nice. freddie galves comes home. squeeze play. 2-0. continues to haunt his old team and brings in two runs. nats within two. fifth inning, tied at four. you have heard this before, haven't you? daniel murphy. two-run double. nats take the lead for good. tommy joseph does it again. more yard work. seventh homer of the season. he has seven in his first 65
at-bats as a philly. the best home run to at-bat ratio in baseball this season. vince velasquez is going on the strained bicep. good news. vince left wednesday's game after two pitches. thank goodness it is not worse. >> this might be a blessing in disguise. hopefully that he's not injured worse than the mri showed. but this could be fine and just help us extend him farther into the season. >> whew! that's a relief. who will take his place tuesday? he'll make his major league debut in toronto. he is 5-2 at lehigh valley. he was one of the pitchers the phillies got when they traded jimmy rollins and on the same day jay rolle was designated on assignment from the white sox. not many left from the 2008 phillies world series champion.
we lost another legend. known as mr. hockey, gordie howe passed away at the age of 88. here he is in philly when his son mark was inducted into the flyers' hall of fame. the only pro athlete in the four major sports to play in five decades. he was hockey's leading scorer until wayne gretzky came along. former flyer stanley cup winner joe watson played against gordie howe. >> he was really an icon to our sport, just like muhammad ali was to boxing. gordie howe was an icon to hockey, and he will be sorely missed. >> there really isn't a mr. football or a mr. baseball. there is a mr. hockey. i'm john clark. enjoy your weekend. i did everything i could to make her party perfect.
